3:03 am
deal is done. hey, we gave the democrats a chance to pass this deal. aren't allow 800,000 plus. 1.8 million to stay in the country? guess what, that deal is done. brian: he ininterpreted the fact that daca is not done and not coming down in the future. maybe somebody in central america is getting green light to america. if you get here you are will get a path to citizenship unlike the illegals here. regardless of the school of thought. next thing you know there is footage and caravan that includes about 1,000 people, including women and children. most of which from honduras that are making their way our direction. and possibly to overwhelm the border guards and being that we don't have a wall, nor are are we really constructing one. the president feels the frustration of something happening that happened to president obama back in 2001. steve: all right. so the president tweeted this out yesterday. ainsley: he said:
3:04 am
he is saying that the catch and release program is unbelievable. once they step foot, have you got 1100 people, 1200 people walking up to step foot into the united states. once they put 1 foot on our soil, we have to take them into custody. we have to listen to their reason why they want to come in. and if they plead there is too much violence in their country or they are seeking asylum because domestic violence or not tweeted fairly or don't have enough money. we have to release them back into the united states until they their court hearing. brian: the thing is you shouldn't look at this as have a heart for central and south americans. there are other people on that line applying for refugee status who are in just as dire need only they are doing it the correct way. they are going through embassies and going through the application green card process. steve: so you have got this
3:05 am
caravan. 1200 people. apparently they are going to stop in mexico city and ask for asylum there. two thirds of them will probably either seek asylum or wind up sneaking across the border as many do. one third will stay in mexico. but, here's the thing, they are in mexico. we know they are coming here. here is the president saying hey, mexico, shouldn't you be stopping people in your own country if they are trying to come into your country illegally or maybe you shouldn't even help us. here is the president at bethesda by the sea church where he went to church yesterday in palm beach. >> mexico has got to help us at the border. and a lot of people are coming in because they want to take advantage of daca. and we are going to have to really see. they had a great chance. the democrats blew it. brian: go ahead, steve. steve: it's hard for me to speak after the game saturday night kill know have a, ku game.

3:17 am
lawmakers, high profile ones on the right, for a second special counsel. is that the right move? did sessions blow it or did he make a good move? constitutional law professor at george washington university jonathan turley weighs in. jonathan, you like this move by sessions. why? >> i do. i think that the attorney general did exactly what people should want him to do. if he had appointed a special counsel, there would have been a considerable delay, great deal of expense. but it would not have moved this case along dramatically, certainly no different from what he has done now. what he essentially did is combined this large investigatory staff of the attorney general and attach to it a lion prosecutor, all the powers of a prosecutor. that will move this along in a much more expedited basis. for people who really want to look at whether there is criminal conduct here. this is a very good way to approach it. what sessions is saying i could still appoint a special counsel.
3:18 am
i want to bring in a prosecutor. combine him with this inspector general, and get at this stuff. to see if there is something here that we need to move on. brian: it's focusing on possible fisa abuses. focusing on the clinton administration investigation. possibly uranium one links. if anything had anything to do with the sale of that company. and uranium one. so, you're saying, too. since huber is already working with horowitz, there is not a lot of ramp up time he needs. he just needs to go down his own path, correct? >> that's right. this is seamless. that's why this is a brilliant approach. reserve the special counsel option. but you move it immediately into a potential prosecutorial stage. what the inspector general lacked were those prosecutorial powers. and both of these men, people have been criticizing them, which leola really has baffled me. talking about who appointed. who both of these men have honorable careers. they are respected by both sides u they are apolitical. you have got a line
3:19 am
prosecutor many of the supports. an ig knows his way around the justice department and shown his independence. this is a lethal combination for people who may have committed criminal acts. brian: darrell issa and senator graham both wants a special counsel. you say this is going to get done faster i something else you wanted to bring um. i did not know. this andy mccabe since he got fired had a go fund me page out there. he has got $500,000. for what? he has been accused of lying four times. who is saying keep up the good work? >> well, that's what's odd here. i have a column in the hill today on this point, which is he has already raised $500,000, which surprised many of us because the report isn't out. so people don't know what led to his termination. and that was a recommendation by career employees. usually charity follows some clarity as to what is involved. that's what is sort of alarming here.
3:20 am
mccabe wanted to raise this money before the report was released. brian: lastly, jonathan, if you are president trump, should you feel good about having jay sekulow and ty cobb as your attorneys? >> first of all, this is, again, i'm again baffled by some of the criticism. these are very good lawyers. i know both of them. and, you know, people have been portraying jay as somehow not experienced. this guy is a resume most lawyers would die for. ty cobb is as good as can you get in terms of in trench guy with criminal and civil experience. i don't think they are wanting for lawyers, quite frankly. brian: this is what makes you a great guest. you do anything but the talking points. jonathan turley, thanks so much. >> thank you. brian: for your legal mind and expertise. i appreciate it coming up straight ahead. army of migrants watching towards america. i'm not kidding. next guest says border agents have their hands tied. dan bongino is here next.

debbie wasserman schultz want background checks to buy bullets. as far as the computer with background data, forget about it a lot of questions for her. that's her. zoom out. the day after chemo might mean a trip back to the doctor's office, just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home, with neulasta onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection, which could lead to hospitalizations. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%,
3:22 am
a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day, so you can stay home. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries, and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. so why go back there? if you'd rather be home, ask your doctor about neulasta onpro. why is dark magic so spell-bindingly good? it's a bold blend of coffee with rich flavors of uganda, sumatra, colombia and other parts of south america. like these mountains, each amazing on their own. but together? magical. all, for a smoother tasting cup of coffee. green mountain coffee roasters.

story and you said there's there was embedded buzzfeed reporter talking about their struggle. okay. final. what about the struggle of the thousands of people from a lot of these other countries that have waited patiently online to do this the right way? what about that struggle? this is what always bothers me about the liberal approach to immigration. they talk about it as if there is not a consequence for other people, steve. there is. one, there is a consequence for us. americans who have to finance this chaos. this isn't immigration policy. this is chaos. secondly, for people who come to the country patiently and legally and they do it the right way. you can't have a country without borders. it's just a land mass without the borders. brian: yeah. that's absolutely true. the president sees what could happen to him, which happened to president obama. next thing you know surge at the border. doesn't know why. got to send joe biden down south to get these people to take their people back. a lot of them end up staying here and getting absorbed into society. end um in schools on limed

3:47 am
the conservative side yet. i think that's what's going to come up next. ainsley: he would say to you because you are a trump supporter. he says the trump supporters need to look in the mirror and say my life sucks. i hate that word. i'm sorry. just quoting it my life sucks because of me. we need to take ownership because of that what were your thoughts when he said that? >> i think he is incorrect. he needs to understand that trump actually represents a very real opportunity for the black community to wake up. and starts with the death of political correctness. i don't really care about trump's tweets. i care about the results. the results are. in okay. black unemployment is at historic low right now. that's because of the work of trump focusing on our economy. and not so much about our feelings which has been traditionally what the democrats are hijacked our emotions. ainsley: it's interesting you bring that up because quinnipiac their recent poll says job approval ration for black voters is down. it was 46% in october. now in march it's 36%. so what does this what do
3:48 am
democrats and republicans need to do to 230e can you say on the black community. how do we fix any problems in that community? what's your advice? >> the first thing is putting back together the black family which democrat president linden b. johnson tore apart with his great society act and giving us new idols all together. we need to talk about the illegal immigrants. that's a huge thing trump has been focused on. they have been directly harming the community when you talk about jobs. democrat are so hyper focused on getting their vote. it's a major problem which trump is addressing. all blacks need to stand with him at this point. ainsley: okay. candace owens. thank you for joining us. have a great day. >> thank you for having me. ainsley: you are welcome. take a look at this. those are elementary school kids. they are kneeling during the singing of the national anthem. how and why? plus, a trooper signs off one last time after serving his community for 37 years.

this strong cooperation. what's inaccurate about it? are those not real people? are they all heading this direction? reported by two separate outlets and we look at the video and see where they are heading. we asked where they are going. they freer to say where they are heading. they know their objective. they are coming in direction. mexico can stop it. a lot of times we see, other than mexicans for the most part otms are the ones coming across the border in the south. it's not mexico. they said if you are going to go straight through you can come in. a lot of them are going straight through. they are not going to get in here. ainsley: if you go down to the border, you will see the crossing. see where can you enter from mexico into the united states. they have this big room where our border agents work. and they take these families in one at a time. and they told mes when i was down there. some of them come in with scratches all over their legs because they made these long journeys into the united states. to try to plea for asylum. because they are escaping violence. they take these families one at a time. that's what this caravan is doing. they will stop there at our borders. they will try to get one

foot on american soil. once that happens then catch and release is administered. once they are on u.s. soil. once even one foot is on our soil, we take them into custody. we process them and they can prove credible fear of going home and therefore we release them into the u.s. until their court hearing. steve: they have done this for a number of years. they do this on holy week to appeal for special amnesty. here's the thing though, if those images are to happen where they come toward the united states, and, you know, there are reporters traveling with them, those are going to be -- they have already got security protocols where the men will form a wall around the women and the children. those images would be really hard to watch. you know, watching children and their families being separated. however, can you imagine though, if that were to happen where 1,000 people just bawkd into the united walkd states. they would be making the case for donald trump's border wall. he would say look, this is the reasonable we need the border wall from stop folks

4:09 am
a special counsel. here's the question. i want a second special counsel with the same determination and resources to look at the abuses of the fisa process. what the clinton email investigation ---was the clinton email investigation a sham. i want a special counsel to be appointed with the same resources and the same determination to look at those issues as is mueller is looking at the trump campaign. and i don't see that yet. brian: they say -- they got the same power. and he says this will be quicker to the point and if you need a second special counsel we will do it after that. he joined us earlier. >> i think that the attorney general did exactly what people should want him to do. what he essentially did, he combined this large investigatory staff of the inspector general and attached to it a line prosecutor who has all the powers of a prosecutor. that's going to move this along in a much more expedited basis.
4:10 am
for people who really want to look at whether there is criminal conduct here, this is a very good way to approach it what sessions is saying is i could still appoint a special counsel. but i want to bring in a prosecutor, combine him with had inspector general and get at this stuff. that's why i think this is a pretty brilliant approach. steve: it really could streamline things. michael horowitz has flagged the bad stuff. he could say mr. huber, look at this. we need to acted on that and that and that. you know, washington is worried about two things. they are worry about the whole russia thing. was there occlusion. this would answer it but, also, there is a cloud over the department of justice and the fbi that needs to be lifted. and if this guy can work quickly, get it done in three or four months. that would be great. if it's stretched out -- ainsley: i understand what jonathan is saying that would just drag it on. if you bring in this guy huber first. brian: already working with horowitz u. ainsley: bring in a second
4:11 am
special counsel that would drag it on longer. america so tired of this this guy could do something about it. steve: this guy could shored sht circuit the system. ainsley: some saying yes, some saying no. brian: the robert mueller investigation is tearing this country apart. it's putting people into their corners and then this would add to that even though their objectives are pure and simple and they have merit, the overall special counsel thing is really damaging. ainsley: special counsel which would be several people looking into it. that would even actually delay it. brian: exactly. ainsley: maybe having one person is the right. brian: it makes a lot of sense u 11 minutes after the hour. jillian mele always makes sense. jillian: absolutely. good morning, guys. ainsley: brian not so much.

4:26 am
>> first of all, the number of people none to religion. it's true to have no religion and still believe in god. i always ask these people what god do you believe in? it's generally a reflection of themselves. for example, do you believe that god gave the 10 commandments no, i don't believe that so what did god give? here's a good question. if god -- if there is no revelation of god's will. what's the difference if you believe in god or not if you don't know what he wants from you? i mean, so the difference between atheism and a god whose will i cannot know is minimal. and that's why i start with the 10 commandments and the introduction to my book the rational bible, i note how important it was to me. i had a difficult time with my parents, which is hardly new in humanity, right? by the way every family in genesis is dysfunctional. it should make people with dysfunctional families to feel better. this is one of the points i

because the old testament is part of christianity. jesus was rooted in the torah, the first five books as much as any religious jew who has ever lived. so, there is nothing that doesn't support a christian's belief in this. and that's why i have a very big christian following and i'm very honored by that fact. but that i am coming from the perspective as a religious jew. it's not to convert anybody. it's to make -- i want you to take this book seriously. abraham lincoln almost never went to church. he read the book every night. do you know what we lack today? wisdom. harvard has no wisdom. ucla has no wisdom. they have knowledge but they don't have wisdom and it's because they don't have this book. brian: wow. 25% of americans describe religion as not very important. let's see if they are converted from this book. congratulations dennis prager. >> thank you for having me.

4:39 am
that is why he moved to make this change. that is why he brought in admiral ronny jackson. someone who is well respected here at the white house, who has served multiple presidents who has bipartisan support. we're going to need someone in there who is going to be able to take on the challenge of congress, and being able to push forward significant veterans legislation. and as well as stay focused on the compassionate care of our veterans, which is a priority for this president. ainsley: he didn't resign. more of a decision made by the president. he knew a change needed to be made. >> general kelly offered him the opportunity to resign. at this point the president said it was time to move on in terms of veterans affairs. he thanks secretary shulkin for his service. and now it's on to what we need to do which is moving forward and making sure that veterans have more affordable choices that they are able to ensure that we reuse the backlog and make sure that veterans don't have to wait extensive period of time to get the service and choice that they need. ainsley: myrtle band is playing behind us very

4:47 am
exactly what they need to say so all they have to do is come here and claim that they fear to go back to their country and they don't have to provide any evidence whatsoever. steve: seems like the problem is once they are arrested, detained, and then they are released, why don't they just expedite it where, okay, they are detained, let's have the hearing right now. >> the problem is you have too many officials in the federal government that don't believe president trump is going to be reelected in 2020. they are trying to wait him out. i have spoken with many political appointees that say that the career professionals are all they during is waiting them out and hoping that they want gets. in federal employees did not vote for president trump. they are trying to throw a monkey wrench into everything he is trying to accomplish. ainsley: it breaks everyone's heart when you see parents and their kids.

we have to make sure we are vetting people to keep our own country safe. when i was down there on the border, they were telling me people come from all over the world. they walk in through mexico. like you said, through catch and release. we have to accept them into our country. why is that fair when you have a long list of people who aren't able to do that that are waiting to get in this country the right way? >> that's interesting. i have several family members from countries other than the united states. that immigrated to the united states legally. and they did it the right way. and so you have quote this backlog of people waiting to come to the country legally and they get very frustrated seeing these people in essence jump ahead of the line. it would be like somebody breaking into your home, sitting on your couch and saying hey, i'm here so you have to let me stay here. finance insane way of think of things. we have to be able to enforce immigration laws and have to have the political will to do. if we don't have the political will, we will be

5:25 am
on daca. we have the chair of pro-american trump ban. eric beach. you say you guys dropped the ball. you didn't accept the original plans. now there is no deal, what do you say. >> i think the president is inaccurate with that. this, make no mistake about it, the president is the quarterback here. he will take all the blame or he is going to get all the glory. in this case with these immigrants marching towards mexico and him complaining about the border not being sufficient enough, whatever happens is all going to fall on him. the democrats had their opportunities, they made some mistakes. this will all fall on the president. we'll see what happens in these elections in november. ainsley: eric, what do you think? is that accurate? what is your response to him? >> well they're not marching toward mexico. they're marching through mexico because we have lax border security. the reality is, not just the democrats but the republicans lost a golden opportunity here,
5:26 am
because they had an opportunity to build the wall in return for possibly a daca compromise. of course the democrats weren't going to vote for that, that shows you where their true colors are. they always come up with a financial argument but you know, $113 billion the taxpayers have to pay in regards to benefits for illegal aliens, so i think this is an opportunity for the republicans to reinforce trump's campaign promise of building the wall. ainsley: anthony, do you have a problem with stricker immigration laws? we had a guest on earlier telling us what catch-and-release really means it. means any of those people coming from violent communities can walk through mexico from south america and into our country. once they take one foot, once they step into our country, and they talk to these border agents, the border agents has to let that person in our country and has to release them into our country until a court date. you're okay with that? >> i don't know i'm going to say
5:27 am
if i'm not for stricter laws but i do have an issue with anyone who wants to come to this country fleeing persecution and looking for a better life. this is no different than what the italians, irish did at the turn of the century. so for us to look at this differently now because they're coming from a country where the majority of people are color is totally un-american. and i believe that our laws are strict enough but if they're fleeing persecution, they have a legal right to come to a place where they feel safe. what other place is better than america? what other place is better for them to have upward mobility than america? obviously there may be bad apples in the bunch. some people who might not be here for the right reasons but i think that number is few and far in between. so let the people come here let the immigrant here and let's see what happens. let the laws work and see what happens. ainsley: eric. >> who is the arbiter of that?
5:28 am
also, that can be -- >> the court is arbiter of that. the courts are the arbiter of that. >> who dictate who is being persecuted and who is not? there are a lot of people all over the world at some point in time we're a country or we're not. we're not a country if we don't have a well. we should have the except the best and brightest into this country and america first policies. we need policies that don't undercut middle class america. >> that is the same argument made centuries, ago when the italians, irish and jews here. when i see -- ainsley: they came through ellis island at time. here is the problem, why even get on the list? why even do it the right way? it takes years for some people to do this. what we're telling people you don't have to do that anymore. get on a plane or a boat or walk your way through mexico and we'll let you in?
5:29 am
>> also set as precedent for other laws. we're a nation of laws. it set as precedent. it's a bad precedent to set. this is up to the democrats. they had a reopportunity here, anthony, to get a daca compromise. they blew that opportunity. it was a great deal on the table by the president. you're right he is the driving force. but mark my words, if illegal immigration is number one issue in these midterm elections they will pay the price at election booth. >> i disagree with that. ainsley: thank you so much. i appreciate you both being here debbie wasserman schultz wants background checks to buy bullets. when it comes to handling computers with congressional data, forget it. the revealing report, coming up. abby is live at the white house easter egg roll this morning. abby, what is coming up there. >> there is officially chaos in the white house. kids have taken over. you can see behind me. you hear about the white house easter egg role.
